Things to see

All roads lead to the city center, where the wide pedestrian zone offers something for everyone. The heart of the old town features almost all must-see attractions in Novi Sad. Traditional pastry and ice-cream shops should be one of your first stops. The Liberty Square has been the stage for most significant events, whether cultural or political. It is also the usual rendezvous point and the main place for feeding pigeons. The square is dominated by two buildings facing one another: City Hall and the Name of Mary Roman Catholic Church known as the Cathedral. A monument to Svetozar Miletic, Novi Sad mayor and a champion of political rights of the Serbs in the 19th century occupies the centre of the square. From there, the pedestrian zone further stretches to Zmaj Jovina Street, the main promenade and the commercial centre of the town. The street is lined with numerous open-terrace cafes and pastry shops. The street ends with the building of the Bishop's Palace, with the Cathedral Church right behind. The corner of Zmaj Jovina and Dunavska streets is the location of the oldest preserved house in Novi Sad (1720) known as "At the White Lion's", which nowadays houses the Irish Pub. Dunavska street, also packed with shops and cafes, leads towards the Danube Park and the Danube river. At the beginning of the street, you can see one of the pockmarks on the town face - the cannonball which remained buried in the building exterior walls (where it landed during the 1849 shelling of the town).
